Who Are We
The Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation (BCIC) recognizes how entrepreneurship stimulates job growth, creates new opportunities in industries that need them, and makes communities better versions of themselves.
There is no clear path to entrepreneurship, but at BCIC we’re changing that.
The eBridge Center for Business & Commercialization is mobilizing the next generation of entrepreneurs and equipping them with the skills and resources they need to create jobs, access capital, and scale commercially.
The eBridge Center is focused not just on tapping into the human capital of our community or commercializing scalable businesses, but establishing entrepreneurial equity in developing and advancing an open and inclusive ecosystem for all entrepreneurs. In partnership with the City of Brownsville, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Small Business Administration, United States Economic Development Administration, Office of Congressman Filemon Vela, Senator John Cornyn, and Senator Ted Cruz.
